Lydia's music transcended the decorated industrial-garden courtyard, rustic ivy background, and spiffed-up guests who attended our daughter's wedding ceremony, adding an elegance that was as perfect as the September afternoon.

Peaceful addition to the day!

What a joy it was working with Lydia! Besides the obvious (she plays beautifully), Lydia was so easy to work with. As I was planning an out of town wedding and had never heard Lydia, she arranged for me to meet in her studio to review the selections and timing. Made a couple of changes to the original contract, all of which were executed flawlessly. Thanks Lydia for your contribution to a wonderful wedding day!

Amazing experience

Lydia was absolutely fantastic! A harp was something I鈥檝e always dreamed of playing at my wedding and it was certainly not disappointing. By choosing the music to the day of Lydia was on top of it. Very thankful we found her!
